Location: Wordsley, Stourbridge
The historic home of Stuart Crystal and one of the country’s earliest glass making locations is a canal side development featuring offices, loft apartments and a Museum of Glass.
The historic Stuart Crystal factory in Wordsley contains several Listed Buildings and a Scheduled Ancient Monument, where fine glassware had been produced since the 1780’s, including the glassware for the Titanic.
The existing listed buildings front the edge of the canal and were originally built as a mill. Situated opposite the Red House Glass Cone (one of only four remaining in the UK) and now a museum, the buildings contain the remains of its twin, the White House Cone. The development includes an artwork that outlines the shape of the former cone in steel forming a gateway feature.
The historic buildings have been converted into 29 loft apartments and 9 office units.
